    There is a lunar eclipse tonight, read all about it here...

    Solstice Lunar Eclipse - NASA Science

    The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST (Monday, Dec. 20th, at 10:33 pm PST). At that time, Earth's shadow will appear as a dark-red bite at the edge of the lunar disk. It takes about an hour for the "bite" to expand and swallow the entire Moon. Totality commences at 02:41 am EST (11:41 pm PST) and lasts for 72 minutes.
    Anyway, I am taking photos of it tonight, and I decided I would share them here for anyone who may be interested.

    The first picture I have uploaded is a pre-eclipse photo, I was trying to get a good feel of how to photograph the moon and I think I have it figured out. Here is the first photo of more to come tonight.

    I will be the first to say I do not have professional equipment, but I make do with what I have. I am using an Canon EOS Digital REBEL XT, 8.0 MP. The lens is a Canon telephoto lens 70-300 mm 1:4 - f/5.6.

    300 mm, ISO 1600, f/16, 1/800 sec

    It also says the best time to look, for the best effect and colors, is 3:17 Eastern or 12:17 Pacific.

    What Squeezy listed in his post, in response to your original time question is Eastern, that's what EST stands for: Eastern Standard Time.

    Not Easter (where bunnies **** eggs) Eastern Standard Time which is offten missused during daylight savings... EST does not change in summer, EDT is used during daylight savings to denote EST, but an hour off.

    Such has been noticed. I frequently did that when I lived on the East Coast, when I moved West, I finally felt like I was in the right time zone. LOL

    Nice pic squeezy! Did you know the last lunar eclipse to occur on a winter solstice was over 450 years or so ago?

    Thanks! I too thought that was interesting.

    I am just finishing the ceremonial pit where we make our sacrifices and the orgy room is coming along very nicely!
